I've been meaning for a long time to visit this place, and recent business in Worcester put me in the neighborhood, so I stopped in on a weekday afternoon after 1 pm. You order at the counter and when your order is ready, they call your name to pick it up. Seating is in four-top booths and... read more

We shared a platter for 3, a 4th person ordered a pulled pork sandwich. Food was great, however the 3 that at the platter were all deathly ill the next day. Deathly ill. Sad, it was one of my favorite places for BBQ.

Located where 90 and 84 meet in western/central MA this is a great spot to pick up some BBQ to have immediately or bring with you! Food is fantastic although staff are not overly friendly.

We have been looking for a great authentic BBQ in Massachusetts and we've found it here. The smoked brisket was incredible, the cornbread was spot on and the BBQ black beans were yummy! So happy and we will be back!

We were on the road for a little more than 2 weeks when we needed some BBQ and read others' reviews of BT's. Score!--we're there! The place is small and you order from a board: meats, sandwiches, sides, desserts. Beverages are fountain sodas, or a lemonade/sweet tea mix. What? No unsweetened iced tea? And no free water either--buy a bottle,... More

Great place to grab real BBQ. My favorite is the pulled pork and the ribs. Love the fact you can bring your own cocktails if you want to.
